In fact, our volunteer teams of disability specialists fit each wheelchair to the recipient and train him/her in its use and upkeep...

WFTWPeople affected by disability in less-developed countries often face serious health problems due to lack of therapy, inadequate housing and care, and ill-fitting wheelchairs – that is, if they have a wheelchair at all! But that's why Wheels for the World is such an important ministry of Joni and Friends. Since 1992, Wheels for the World has given more than 100,000 wheelchairs to those affected by disability around the globe, and our goal is to give out 100,000 more by 2020! This fall and winter, we are holding a number of Wheels for the World outreaches, and your prayers will help make them successful!...
